Message 1: TIME Chomsky Reference

Date: Thu, 1 Apr 1999 10:34:42 +0000
From: Shari L Cole <tropicalbeachjuno.com>
Subject: TIME Chomsky Reference

A short time ago I pulled a reference to an interview in TIME from the
Linguist List. I don't know who sent it in because after I wrote it
down, I erased the message. Would someone with the correct reference
be so kind as to forward it to me? The reference TIME, A changed Noam
Chomsky simplifies by Margalit Fox, December 5, 1998 does not exist.

Thank you. 
Shari

Message 2: definitions of controlled languages

From: Jeff ALLEN <jeffelda.fr>
Subject: definitions of controlled languages

I am particularly interested in compiling a list of definitions 
of the terms "Controlled Language" and "Sub-language". Since there
are potentially different interpretations of these terms, I invite replies 
from people of different fields of interest. 

I would appreciate your replies on how you would
define these terms.

Please send replies to me directly at <jeffelda.fr>

A summary of responses will be posted later.

Thanks in advance.

Message 3: percentages - Controlled Language documents/presentations

Date: Tue, 06 Apr 1999 21:06:30 +0200
From: Jeff ALLEN <jeffelda.fr>
Subject: percentages - Controlled Language documents/presentations

This is a short survey:

I would like to know in which languages different articles, 
papers, theses, dissertations, have been 
written/presented on the subject of Controlled 
Languages / Sublanguages.

Please provide the following general information in replies:

1. language name(s) in which the information on Controlled
Languages / Sublanguages has been conveyed;

2. the _approximate_ percentage of documents/presentations
on Controlled Languages/Sublanguages that you have read/
heard in this/(each of these) language(s);

3. please differentiate between documents/presentations that 
are publicly accessible (published, available on the Internet)
and those that are not (e.g., internal company documents, 
company meetings). No details are necessary, just
approximate percentages.

For example:

Publicly available:
Language X: 50%
Language Y: 20%
Language Z: 30%


Not publicly available:
Language X: 75%
Language Y: 25%

If you wish to indicate the _approximate_ number
of reports/papers/presentation per public and
non-public categories, it would be greatly 
appreciated but is not necessary.

Please send replies to me directly at <jeffelda.fr>

Many thanks in advance.
